With the recent heavy rainfall in the area, the Illinois Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to use caution. IDOT warns motorists against driving into flood waters and urges extra caution on the roads, especially when flash flood warnings and watches are in place.
Drivers are reminded not to attempt to cross water covered roadways, even if it appears shallow enough to cross. Additionally, if your car stalls, do not attempt to push it out. Instead seek higher ground.
